1. This film portrays Americans as being forced into war by the Japanese more and more each day. The Americans are seen as unprepared at first, but then they are seen as the best prepared and best supported soldiers and sailors in the world.The Americans are seen as liberators and defenders of justice for the world. The Japanese are portrayed as cruel conquerors who were forcing our boys to fight in order to preserve freedom. There is one part of the movie where an American G.I. is head-butted with the stock of a rifle from behind by a Japanese soldier. There was also the mention of rumors of Japanese atrocities.

5. There is a lot of information left out. The movie only covers the war in the Pacific. It covers only one theatre of the war and fails to mention Pearl Harbor! There is no mention of Japanese internment camps. All Americans going off to war are shown as good, clean-cut white boys. No African-Americans or Japanese Americans are portrayed as heroes.

6. Yes, this film has definite biases based on the year of it's release, 1945. The film was meant to gather support from mostly white Americans. Understandably, because they did make up the vast majority of the U.S. population at the time. If this film had been produced today, more effort would have been made to show the diversity in our armed forces. There would have probably even been a short segment on the Japanese Americans who went off to fight against their ancestral lands while their families were forced to live in internment camps.

A beautifully made 1945 film that shows the sacrificies of American civilians and soldiers during World War II. It should be seen as a part of the 20th century American history curriculum to high school or middle school students.

This highly regarded documentary by the US government's war information office has been justly regarded as the very best the genre has to offer. Portions of it are frequently shown in current World War II documentaries. It contains a snapshot of small town life on the eve of the war. Colored throughout by a Frank Capra-like humanity, it reminds you why we call them the greatest generation and why, in so many ways, World War II was (to paraphrase Churchill) this country's finest hour.

Pretty amazing and heartstring-pulling tale of one town's struggles with losing boys in the war. Presented by 20th Century Fox and narrated by Henry Fonda, it's clear there that this film won't pull any punches about how a town cheered when the boys went to war, then slowly, as the war dtagged on, how that slowly lead to dread. But soon the town realized if they increased production, and rationed everything, that would increase the speediness of the boys coming home. Excellent production values and acting, this film comes highly reccomended!
